Banana and Pineapple Loaf

    2 hours 10 minutes

    This was a trial recipe that turned out perfectly. It's very moist and not overly sweet. You could add icing if you wanted but I don't think it needs it. It's best eaten whilst fresh, but you could also toast it and add some butter.

    1. Preheat oven to 175 degrees Celsius (fan forced)
    2. Melt butter on stove or in microwave and let cool a little
    3. In a large mixing bowl, add all the dry ingredients, then all the wet ingredients, stir everything together (fork or whisk)
    4. Add in the mashed bananas and pineapple pieces; stir in gently (fork or whisk). Do not over mix or beat the batter
    5. Turn the mixture into a lightly buttered or sprayed silicone loaf tin and place on centre tray in oven – cook for 50 mins
    6. The loaf should rise substantially and be browned on top, slightly shrinking from the sides of the tin. Insert a skewer into the centre of the loaf and if it comes out clean, it’s ready


    The loaf can be stored in an airtight container for 3 – 5 days. Loaf can also be frozen.
